SpotYokai helped the town

Tottori Prefecture has the smallest population in Japan. Sakaiminato is the smallest city of the four cities in Tottori Prefecture. It prospered as a port where many ships for trade came in the Edo period (1603-1867) and also as an important trade port of the Sea of Japan route to the Korean Peninsula, China and Russia from the Meiji period (1867-1912). However, from around the 1980s the shopping street in front of the station began to go into decline. What helped the town at this juncture was yokai.
